The Bucher HPX 12007 press is suitable for a wide range of solid liquid separating tasks. The press has been established worldwide for juice extraction from apples, pears, black currants, cherries, grapes, berries, pomegranates, stone fruits and vegetables. It is also successfully in use in the pharmaceutical industry for extraction of enzymes and herbal extracts and is the right choice if highest extraction yield combined with low suspended solid content is required. The yield of valuable substances can be increased by post-extraction with water or other solvents.

The HPX 12007 press is designed as a hydraulic piston-cylinder system. A bundle of 180 drainage elements is installed between the piston and the cylinder bottom. After filling the press with product through the central inlet, several pressing cycles are executed until the desired press result is achieved. A pressing cycle comprises of the gentle pressing of the product by the forward moving piston and subsequent intensive loosening of the press cake while the piston moves backward and the press unit is rotating. The interaction of pressing and loosening steps is unique and leads to maximum yield of high quality juices with low suspended solid content. After the pressing is finished the press cylinder opens and the pressing residue is discharged. The self-optimizing control system determines the pressability of the product in every process phase. The pressing parameters are continuously adapted to achieve optimum throughput and yield. Realtime data recording provides comprehensive data of process cycles and production results.
